15 January 1986 Epoxyless Polishless Plastic Connector For Multimode Fibers
Author Affiliations +
A new plastic connector was developed for a 200/250 micron multimode fiber that does not use epoxy, nor needs polishing to complete the assembly, hence termed epoxyless and polishless connector. The insertion loss for a mated pair had a mean value of 0.93 dB and the time required to assemble this connector to a cable was less than two minutes. When subjected to environmental testing the connector did not exhibit any deterioration in perform-ance.
